PAST PAGES
Playwright Eugene Ionesco was born on this day in 1909. Ionesco was a member of the Avant-Garde movement, or Theater of the Absurd. One of his best known works is "Rhinoceros" (1959), in which the inhabitants of a small French village gradually turn into the animal, save for one Everyman. The play is seen as a response to the uprise in Communism, Fascism and Nazism before and after World War II.
